AQU Catalunya participates in a European project to design an online assessment system

AQU Catalunya participates in TeSLA (Adaptive Trust-based e-assessment System for Learning) to define and deveop an e-assessment system to authenticate students and identify the authorship for learning activities on both, partially or wholly online learning environments.

The coordinating institution of TeSLA project is the UOC which, as a university that works with its own virtual learning environment, has proven experience of online teaching and learning processes. The TeSLA consortium is made up of 18 organizations that are expert in different knowledge and research areas with a recognised expertise across Europe. The project is funded under the EU Horizon 2020 3-year-programme, starting in January 2016.

The aim of TeSLA is to improve the online assessment process by introducing tools and resources in learning activities that gather data that enable students to be authenticated and identified. By means of this innovative online assessment system, TeSLA opens up new opportunities for educational institutions. The universities involved in the project will undertake a series of large-scale pilot tests with over 14,000 students from all over Europe, respecting social and cultural differences, guaranteeing equal opportunities and providing an inclusive solution.

The project will offer a free standard version of the online assessment system for educational institutions and a professional commercial version for distribution on the international market.
